    Which bar ends for a carbon bar?

    Hello all.

    Which bar ends do you guys recommend with an Easton Monkeylite XC carbon handlebar? I need bar ends that don't pinch the bar where the screw is located.

    What do you guys use with your CARBON bars? Thanks in advance for the advice, and yes, I like the extra leverage on the SS.

    on my SS I run cane creek bar ends. I have low-rise carbon bars. for what its worth, I don't give a cr** what people say about bar ends in general, or bar ends on riser bars. i am on the bar ends pretty much whenever I am not going downhill.

    Ergon

    I use Ergon grips with the intigrated bar ends on my carbon bars. Best upgrade I have made on my bikes in years.

    ....make sure you install some kind of a anti-crimp/crush spacer inside the end of the bars. I had a wood dowel laying around to make plugs that were a snug fit on my Eastons. Also I try not to grab the whole bar end and keep part of my palm and lower finger(s) on the bars just in case of a catostrophic failure!
